CAMBRIDGE IN AMERICA (CAm)
Cambridge in America (CAm) is the alumni, development, and communications center for the American constituents of the University of Cambridge and its thirty-one member Colleges. A historic institution of higher education, Cambridge consistently ranks among the top five research universities worldwide. In its distinctive setting on the River Cam in southeast England, the University educates more than 18,000 students annually and its graduates have been ranked the most employable in the world by the International New York Times. The University boasts a world-class and long-standing reputation for excellence. Since early in the 20th century, 90 Cambridge faculty members have won the Nobel Prize, and they have won in every category.
In 2009, the University of Cambridge reached a historic milestone --its 800th Anniversary. An 800th Anniversary Campaign was launched in 2005, with a goal of £1.2 billion, the largest ever for a UK-based institution. By successfully engaging alumni and an international network of supporters, the goal was reached in 2012. New funding was earmarked for investment in faculty and students, as well as the endowment that underpins Cambridge’s academic initiatives and status as a world renowned institution.
Sustaining a university of this caliber demands continual investment in new facilities, new areas of study, and most importantly, in people; so continued fundraising efforts and innovative partnerships are vital, including especially those in North America. In recent years, CAm has raised close to $20 million annually to fund the full spectrum of educational and research initiatives. Now, in light of the far reaching capital, endowment and programmatic goals of the University of Cambridge, CAm is gearing up to raise even more. A new international campaign—only the second in Cambridge University’s centuries-long history—will soon be launched with an ambitious fundraising goal to ensure that Cambridge remains at the forefront of institutions of higher education across the globe.
Cambridge in America is headquartered in New York City and runs alumni and development programs across the US and Canada. We have an unwavering commitment to excellence in our work and foster a culture of performance and collaboration in achieving superior results. We highly value our staff and promote a working environment that leverages talent and initiative without restraining it and respects the work-life balance. This is an exceptionally exciting time to join the team at Cambridge in America as we prepare to support Collegiate Cambridge in its next successful campaign.
